I’ve been teaching 31 years, 24 years in first grade. I love teaching. It makes me feel great going to school each day. Thanks for your wonderful magazine. I loved receiving them in the mail each month and would get excited to see all the new worksheets and ideas that I could introduce to my students. I love that it all digital now. It makes my life easier knowing that the magazine is at my finger tips.
